CONNECT THE STARS, by Marisa de los Santos and David Teague

connect

The story: Audrey and Aaron both end up at a desert camp because their parents think they need a change–Audrey because she’s convinced everyone lies (Well! It’s true!) and so they’re just not worth the effort, and Aaron because although he has a photographic memory and is a fountain of facts, he can’t figure out how to connect those facts to navigating social situations. When they find themselves in the desert at the mercy of a possibly psychotic camp director and the target of bullies on the other team, both have to figure out how to reach out to others–and maybe even make friends. Cuz in the desert, it really is do…or die.

 

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you like an adventure story that happens to regular kids like you (meaning they have problems of their own to deal with, along with the problems in the camp) then you should take a look at this one!
